Losing weight and keeping off the extra pounds has never been easy. There is no miracle pill or drink that you can take that would give you instant results.

It entails careful planning and following that plan meticulously to see results.

There are, however, small changes that you can do to boost either your diet plan or your exercise plan for better results.

Like knowing the right time to take your meals to boost your weight loss.

In a report on the Daily Express, a study shows that eating your dinner early helps your body in breaking down fat and burning more calories.

The study showed that those who ate earlier at 6 p.m. burned more fats than those who ate late at 10 p.m. regardless of the food that they had.

Jonathan C. Jun of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, M.d, who authored the study, said that the results revealed that late dinners will worsen your tolerance to glucose and thus will reduce your fat burning.

According to Levels Health, your level of the insulin hormone tends to mirror your glucose levels. Insulin is a key hormone involved in storing fat and weight gain, thus when it is not regulated and it becomes high, it will impair the ability of your body to burn fat for energy.

Jun's study also showed that the glucose level of those who ate late was higher by 18 percent and the amount of fat that they burned overnight decreased by 10 percent.

Aside from eating dinner early, eating breakfast between 6 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. is also beneficial for weight loss. Of course, you would also have to take into account what you eat.

Lunch, on the other hand, should be eaten before 3 p.m. Those who eat lunch earlier have also been said to lose weight more.

According to a study, dieters lose 25 percent more weight when they eat their daily calories before 3 p.m.
